It’s time to announce the winner of the 2015 Bourbonr Whiskey Of The Year. One of the most honorable and prestigious awards in bourbon 🙂 While it may not actually be prestigious, it’s still important because you selected it. The drinker/reader, spending your money to try these limited releases. The 2015 voting included close to 2,000 votes!
The Winner is — Four Roses Small Batch Limited Edition
If a whiskey didn’t receive more than ten votes, I didn’t include it in the chart.
The first thing I notice is FRSmBLE won by a landslide. It had more than twice as many votes as any other release. I completely agree with this as it was my choice as well. It’s also interesting that the winner doesn’t have the biggest price tag. Second, Heaven Hill was able to re-release the Elijah Craig 18 year with success. After going on a hiatus for a few years, EC18 has come back more popular with a much higher price tag. Finally, there are several releases that aren’t that hard to find. Be on the lookout for 1792 Port Finish and Woodford Reserve Rye.
